Synopsis


Made
In this reunion of Swingers co-stars Jon Favreau (making his feature directorial debut) and Vince Vaughn, the two star in a new Mob comedy set in the underbelly of New York City. Favreau plays Bobby, an aspiring boxer who has a lackluster record but refuses to give up his lifelong dream. Ricky (Vaughn) is a loose cannon hanger-on who dreams of breaking into the mob. When Bobby begins to get close to old-time Mob boss Max (Peter Falk), Ricky believes it is a way into organized crime. Max is more interested in Bobby carrying out orders, but he allows the two to perform a job In New York under the supervision of a smooth crime lord (music mogul Sean Combs). Ricky then is powered by the idea that he and Bobby are bigwigs in their new community of acquaintances and begins to assume the role of a high roller -- at the expense of his friend. Made, also written by Favreau, also features Sopranos regular Vincent Pastore, Famke Janssen, and Faizon Love in supporting roles. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi

Swingers
A knowing examination of the psyche of the modern American male, Doug Liman's debut comedy Swingers stars screenwriter Jon Favreau as the sensitive Mike, a struggling actor and stand-up comic looking for romance in the wake of the dissolution of a six-year relationship. Against his better judgment, he hits the town with his pal Trent (Vince Vaughn, in a star-making performance), a retro-hip smooth-talker who calls women "babies" and feels compelled to illustrate to Mike the error of his gentlemanly ways. First in Las Vegas and later in a series of hip L.A. nightspots, the duo and their other pals, including a guy named Sue (Patrick Van Horn), prowl for women, looking for kicks and cheap thrills. The difference is that while Trent wants sex, Mike wants love and romance. Only when he learns to simply be himself does he find what he's looking for. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

    "Made" is new to blu-ray and really the main selling point to this double feature unless you're like me and didn't already have "Swingers" on blu-ray. Since "Swingers" is the same disc and information on that can be found anywhere I'll only be discussing "Made." If you're lucky enough to find this double feature in stores, which I haven't been, you'll notice the back cover is simply text up and down all over the back. No special features are listed at all, only technical specs are. At first this had me seeing red, thinking I was getting both these great films barebones when previous releases have had fairly decent amount of extra material. So I put in "Made" and thankfully it has ported over all the special features from the DVD, nothing exclusive to blu-ray though. As far as technical specs go, "Made" comes to us on blu-ray with 1080p HD and while this isn't really an action extravaganza with reference quality picture, it does look good enough and probably as good as it will ever look. As far as audio goes we get English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and English and Spanish subtitles. The disc sounds great. Special features for "Made" are as follows and in SD. Commentary with Favreau and Vince Vaughn, deleted scenes, outtakes, theatrical trailer, 3 short-documentaries: "Getting it Made", "The Creative Process" and "Making the Music of Made." ."

    I'd owned both of these films on DVD for quite some time and was just looking to replace them on Blu Ray, so I was happy to snatch this up when I saw it pop up in the cheap bin. Both films are highly recommended!
